The usual daily cycle of rain/showers/bit of sun continued today as karen and I headed out wet  west on the train to Inverailort. We headed over from there to the head of Loch Boraid which lies in a wonderful, remote setting between the road to the isles and the Knoydart area. The path that's marked on the os map is in reality quite an indistinct route, and I guess that's why we saw no one all day. The rain did actually ease off and we had an dry afternoon with a few glimpses of sun. The paths are saturated and the burns (even the smallest ones) are still in spate. There was an interesting crossing on one of these and Karen went for the adventurous and more exciting way across it, purely for photographic reasons I thought. The next crossing at the east end of the loch was impassable so we had a hike further up stream and uphill before we could negotiate that one. We mad it to Glenfinnan just before dusk and saw some beautiful, remote land that I guess few folk have ever been.
